    It happened to me too. My armpits are super smooth but, I have to keep a back-up deodorant in my purse. It starts to wear off by midday. I’ve never had to do that before – not even in the summer.

    What I found is that when u have hair under your arms it produces a b.o smell. With laser removal you do get rid of that hair for good but actually tiny white hairs grow back that are really unnoticeable but they’re the ones that create this smell. And ur stuck with it since you aren’t allowed to shave them

    After laser hair removal, just after the first treatment and so on. My underarm BO has gotten so bad. I could put deodorant on 3 times a day and it still smells bad

    I never experienced B.O in 32 years of my life! Lazer, opened up the pores under my arms and I now know, what B.O really is 😣!!! They have no idea what they're on about!!! Really disappointed

    I hardly wear deodorant anymore after getting laser hair removal done on my underarms. And if I have a very active day and sweat a lot it does not smell like it used to. So it was a good thing for me. =)

    I'm very disappointment!!! it can make your odors worse under your arms even if you are a very clean person! it happened to me. I did not usually sweat under my arms and I did not use deodorants (after showering) all the time except when I exercised , because I'm always in air conditioning. Now I have to use deodorant after showering and even if I'm at work, sitting and in air conditioning. and I am a very clean person. Now sometimes I have to go to the bathroom and use deodorant twice a day when I never used it !!

    What's just use crispr or whatever is out there that can genetically stop things from happening in your body such as hair growth from head to toe and just get hair plugs I think the best kind of plugs would be a synthetic silk nylon with a medical grade silicone bulb to attach a root and this way we have complete control and don't have to worry about shit the drawback it won't grow the upside you can color it whatever you want have the perfect eyelashes and eyebrows and overtime can change up the styles from longer follicles to Shorter ones it can revolutionize the way we do Society

    After lazer hair removal I started to feel more wet in my underpit area because the sweat has nothing to cling and just runs down (sorry if it's a bit disgusting). But I never felt like it caused more smell, I think just the opposite. if you take care of yourself with daily cleaning and deodorants it will never be a problem. and it feels absolutely great not to have a dark underpit and being able to forget about shaving that area.
